Are you a fan of having a daily routine scheduled as you go about your day? Or do you prefer the more casual happy-go-lucky approach in life? I am personally a fan of getting into a routine schedule because for me, failing to plan is planning to fail. I make it a point that if something is not scheduled, it does not happen.

In today’s episode, I talk about the management arm of things regarding how I manage my time and organize my day. I share how I create my daily schedule to accommodate business mechanisms such as responding to clients and setting consulting sessions while giving way to personal priorities like family time and family gatherings. I reveal how scheduling time into my day allows me to gain flexibility and makes room for my business to grow. I also explain why you should have an on-going to-do list, goals, and strategies.

Yes, we are the technician in terms of running our business. Yet we’re also the manager. We’re also the entrepreneur.


  • Story of my international pilot client with “White Coat Syndrome”
  • Instead of using an affirmation model, use a “building improvement” model
  • There is no such thing as finding the time, a game we say to fool ourselves, or excuse for things we don’t yet want to do
  • Reasons why I am a fan of email as a communication strategy
  • Lesson learned the hard way about balancing client appointments and personal life
  • Watching out for the moment when people usually lose focus
  • Scheduling time into my day that allows flexibility
  • Phone sales strategy I teach called “500K Phone Process”
  • Sample color coding on calendar and reasons behind the chosen colors
  • How outsourcing additional staff or having a virtual team helps me duplicate myself

Are you aware that a mere suggestion can change its meaning based on the context and manner of its delivery? More often than not, others not only listen to the message we want to convey, but also pay attention to how we say it. Aside from the content, our delivery matters. The latter involves verbal tones such as volume, context, and tonality.

In today’s episode, I talk about what a "throwaway" suggestion is and how I use it to soften suggestions that may sound bold or demanding. I demonstrate how I soften my suggestions by using throwaways such as, “Whatever’s appropriate for you” and “There’s no right, there’s no wrong.” I also explain the different throwaway approaches like using a tag question at the end of the statement, deemphasizing to emphasize, and a combination method with the latter comprised of an indirect suggestion, a negative command, and a bit of a tag question.


It’s a bit of a tonality trick to say something really bold and then soften it and then continue along your way.


  • How I use throwaway suggestions during any hypnotic induction
  • The brain interprets suggestions that are too bold as an idiotic suggestion
  • How a throwaway suggestion gives bold suggestions a sting so they wouldn’t sound too bold
  • An outdated approach versus an improved one
  • Importance of patterns when using throwaway suggestions
